1928 INVICTA 4.5L
HIGH CHASSIS LC-Type
The car with the most wonderful performance in the world.
The LC Invicta was probably the best-looking sports car of its period, massive performance and many records set by this type of Invicta in period, many by the famous lady driver Violet Cordery. Including driving round the UK in top gear!
With a light-weight body in combination with a powerful 4.5 ltr Meadows engine this contemporary un-supercharged motor will surprise you with its amazingly flexible yet extremely powerful engine. Especially as this particular car is an even more powerful performance enhanced engine.
From day one this model was a very competitive race car! And Invicta were rightly regarded as a very serious force on the race tracks of pre-way England.
